As Borders Begin to Reopen, Global DMC Partners Shares Continuous Country-by-Country Updates with the MICE Industry
Compiling data from its global network of DMCs, GDP serves as the go-to resource for meeting and event planners operating in the New, and Ever-evolving, Normal
Washington, D.C. - To support meetings and events during this critical moment in the industry's history, Global DMC Partners (GDP), the leading global network of independently owned destination management companies (DMCs) and creative event experts, has tapped its destination experts from around the world to provide timely updates on the latest guidelines and restrictions surrounding COVID-19. GDP has compiled the data and will provide weekly updates, freely available to all, at the following link: https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5625299/GDP-COVID-19-Country-Guidelines
The data collected by GDP is presented by region (Africa, APAC, the Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, the United States and Canada) and then by country or state/province, along with the date of the update. Each destination has been asked to supply the following valuable information for meeting planners:
- When will the destination be out of confinement/expected to be out of confinement?
- When are hotels opening?
- When are restaurants opening?
- When are groups going to be allowed to meet?
- And for how many people?
- When are your borders opening?
- Which countries are being allowed?
- Are there country restrictions?
- What are the criteria for international travelers to enter the country?
- What safety and health protocols are being implemented at the airport(s)?
- What percentage of normal flights is coming into the destination?
- When are flights expected to be fully operational?
In addition to these country-by-country updates, Global DMC Partners has developed and committed to a new Health & Sanitation Standards document, which is also available to meeting planners at the following link: https://globaldmcpartners.com/gdphealthandsanitation.
